Help: Ping G2 vs Cleveland CG Gold ??


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I have been gaming Ping G2 irons with the Ping steel stiff shafts. 

I have also happened to come upon a set of Cleveland CG Gold MCT irons with DG shafts. 

Does anyone have any insight on what is different, better, or worse between them? 

From what I gather they are both game improvement, over sized, cavity back with wide soles. So, is there a significant difference in bounce, offset, or COG?

I enjoy the forgiveness of the G2 with my only complaint being launching a bit too high, and less feedback on mishits. 

I haven't had a chance to hit the Cleveland clubs yet. Just looking for some help on what I might expect.

Updates: I had a chance to hit the Cleveland CG Gold - wow! The difference is substantial without being in another world. 

The Cleveland offset is less, the bounce is less, and the shaft seems heavier than my Ping G2 irons. I was surprised how it seems more effortless to swing faster and make better contact with the Cleveland clubs. 

I can't read the label on the shaft for flex which makes me wonder if it is S300 or X100 or DG SL... Time will tell.

Blast from the past! Cleveland CG Golds were the very first set of irons I bought for myself. £290/$400 4-PW. That gets you 2 clubs nowadays! Absolutely loved the CG Golds, but then changed to the Cleveland CG Tours about 2 years later which were even better. Both came with S300’s.
